“A photograph isn’t necessarily a lie, but nor is it the truth. It’s more of a fleeting, subjective impression. What I most like about photography is the moment that you can’t anticipate: you have to be constantly watching for it, ready to welcome the unexpected.” – Martine Franck

Franck was born in Antwerp and spent her childhood in England and America, returning to Europe to study art history in Madrid and Paris. A trip to the Far East with friend Ariane Mnouchkine, the world-renowned theater director, sharpened her focus on photography. Starting out as a trainee at Time Life in 1963, Franck met and married legendary photographer and artist Henri Cartier-Bresson, later becoming one of a select few women with the influential Magnum Photos agency. She subsequently traveled extensively, photographing diverse and particular parts of the world’s population within their own milieu, all with an equal measure of respect and compassion.
